We explored so many Christmas markets! They always served gluhwein (hot spiced wine), raclette (Swiss cheese fondue), and so much marzipan (almond paste sweets). My grandparents and father are German/Austrian so we were traveling with them! We always celebrate Christmas on the evening of the 24th. It was so great to actually experience a traditional Christmas in Europe for once, although it probably wasn’t good for my health.

…Off on our Rhine river adventure! We traveled with Grand Circle Cruiseline, and the ship was beautiful. I might give the false pretense that I carry myself with dignity, but I actually took quite the spill down the ship’s staircase in front of some of the workers. Within minutes, I think the majority of the passengers (mostly older folks) knew and chuckled at me. Ah gotta love this grace and dignity.

Christmas vacation time! We started off in Basel, Switzerland, and from there we caught our river cruise ship that’s going to be sailing down the Rhine river through Germany and France. When I say “Bundled up in Basel” I really mean freezing my goosebumps off because it was SO COLD. And even though I layered like the best of ’em, I could not keep that body heat in.

xoxo, Gossip Girl… okay but seriously I felt like I was living Serena’s life, guys. NYC was wonderful! We went to the Rockettes and Wicked and took photos EVERYWHERE. My friend from back home designed this Starbucks cup for the winter line! So of course I had to take them out of the trash and snap photos of it. Plz ignore the dried on gum.

Nothing beats fall in the northeast. And the beautiful gothic architecture of this school makes everything sooooo much more UGH amazing. I’m deep in my first semester here at Princeton and I’m loving it! Met a lot of cool people and done a lot of fun things! (Haha just kidding, I have no friends and flunking out of classes. SOS) My mom came for thanksgiving and we hopped over to NYC.
